I have been to over 60 countries and have stayed at over 30 all inclusive resorts in my short 35 years on this planet and the Melia Nassau is by far the worst All Inclusive I have ever stayed in. The Melia brand should be embarrassed to have this property in their portfolio.
We were there from 3/7 - 3/12/14... Check in was actually easy, no line. We had to wait 30 minutes (several times, so more like 3 hours) but there was no wait when we initially got there which is different from other reviews.
- The service is the worst I have ever seen. The bartenders literally ignore the guests. It is NOT uncommon to wait 20+ minutes for a drink. They literally make NO eye contact and act like you don't exist. It is a very strange feeling - one time I was there for 33 minutes and said "excuse me, can I please have a beer" the response was "wait your turn man" ... I walked away.
- The room are very basic, the room we were in (602) had a huge rip in the carpet, first think you see upon entering the room.
- The food is an absolute joke. There is one restaurant that is not a buffet, it is only open for dinner and the food is horrible. There is a buffet restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The breakfast was decent. If you don't have an all inclusive plan just eat at the on site Starbucks, someone from Starbucks should start serving dinner there, they would make a killing. Every night you would see people walking around with Dominoes Pizza boxes - it was THAT bad.
- The worst part about it was the service and the staff. Melia needs to fire every employee and completely revamp their staff. Close down for a week, train the staff on how to treat guests and re open. I went to my room on the 3rd day to shower, as I was approaching my room (at 3:00pm) the housekeeper was just getting to cleaning it. I asked her for 15 mins so I could freshen up to go into town. She told me she had to go to other floors and it was now or never. She said she would clean my room while I was in the shower.... Strange, but wanted to get the room cleaned.
You can't beat the beach - maybe see if you can bring a tent and a cooler and just never step foot inside that hotel....
Happy to give any more info if you would like it, just ask!
